1. Does the metaverse already exist?

Given the broad definition, the metaverse does exist if you factor in for some online games. (Think of titles that allow you to create an avatar, allowing players to gather together.) Of course, any current metaverse iterations are extremely limited.

2. Is the metaverse safe?

Given the variables at this moment in time, probably not. Once again, we’ll have to wait and see exactly what ‘the metaverse’ has to offer, although it’s likely to come with many cybersecurity risks.

3. Do we need a metaverse?

No. However, it’s human nature to expect technology to advance, even if there are growing pains associated with a move to Web3 apps. 

4. What is a dapp?

Decentralized applications run on a blockchain network of computers instead of relying on a single server or device. Many dapps are built using blockchain tech such as the Ethereum network. 

5. Can NFTs be stolen?

Yes. If anyone gets access to your wallet/key they’ll be free to move assets. Typically, this would involve crypto, but can also include NFTs.

6. Is Web 3.0 safer than Web 2.0?

In theory, Web3 should be safer due to the decentralized nature of its design. Users should also have more control over their personal information. That’s not to say that there aren’t Web 3.0 cybersecurity risks, just that we can’t be sure what they’ll be exactly.
